Prerelease videos

So as we know, there have been a few prerelease videos released in the run-up to the game, which include:

  • The Mean Machines Sega promotional VHS, which shows a build that looks to have come a little later after the Simon Wai prototype and shows Emerald Hill, Chemical Plant and Hill Top. Also, Tails has Sonic's life icon in 2P VS Mode.
  • The Spanish promotional VHS, which shows a build that appears to be much like the one in the above video, except Tails now has his own life icon in 2P VS (but still says "SONIC").
  • A preview of the game shown on the UK game show Gamesmaster, which shows a build made later from the above two videos, with work-in-progress title cards and a Casino Night with a finalised design but different object placement. Nobody ever seems to talk about the build in this video.

Though, given how they're YouTube videos, how do we cover them in this page? --BSonirachi (talk) 11:35, 16 February 2019 (EST)

Truth be told, I don't know. I've been thinking about it for a while, but there's currently no means of saying "show 10 seconds of footage starting at this point in time".
I guess as a start, promotional videos could be uploaded (in full) to Retro CDN - at least then the content is accessible to us. We'll figure something out after then. -Black Squirrel (talk) 11:52, 16 February 2019 (EST)
